A man needs a battle to fight; he needs a place for the warrior in him to come alive and be honored, trained, seasoned. If we can reawaken that fierce quality in a man, hook it up to a higher purpose, release the warrior within, then the boy can grow up and become truly masculine. —John Eldredge, Wild at Heart
Here at Grace, we understand men.
We understand that you probably don’t feel a strong need to share your feelings in everyday conversations. We understand that given the option, you will always choose gym shorts over tucking your shirt in. But most of all, we understand that you probably don’t like coming to church.
We hope you will find that we aren’t like most churches though. Why? Because we won’t tell you to settle down and just be nice. We won’t tell you to behave yourself, follow the rules, and always file your TPS reports on time.
We’re going to welcome you with open arms regardless of where you’re at in your journey. But most of all, we’re going to help you follow Jesus. After all, once your heart comes alive to Him, that’s when the true adventure begins.
Men need a safe place to talk about their stuff (good and bad).
What if there was a place that was so safe, you could finally let your secrets come into the light and not be rejected, but be loved and accepted by other men who’ve been there as well?

Connection Groups for Men
We offer a number of connection groups for men, some general in nature, some geared specifically toward men who have been through divorce or are facing other struggles.
Check out our Groups page and choose “Men’s Ministry” from the department menu to see a current listing of what we have to offer.
